Bamboo

Did you know?

  • Bamboo is the fastest growing woody plant on this planet, growing up to one third faster than the fastest growing tree. Some species can grow up to 1 metre per day
  • Bamboo is a grass, not a tree
  • Unlike timber, bamboo is a self-regenerating natural resource; harvesting bamboo does not kill the whole plant, so there is no need for replanting - it just grows back
  • A forest of bamboo releases 35 percent more oxygen and absorbs at least four times more carbon dioxide than an equivalent sized forest of trees
  • There are over 1000 species of bamboo
  • A single bamboo clump can produce up to 15 kilometres of usable pole in its lifetime
  • A sixty foot tree cut for market takes 60 years to replace. A 60 foot bamboo cut for market could take as little as 59 days to replace, depending on the species of the bamboo
  • In total about 18 million hectares of bamboo are distributed in world ecosystems in Asia, Africa and America
  • Bamboo can be used to build houses, to make paper, as food, for furniture, to build bridges, to make musical instruments, to make fabric and the shoots are good food source.
